The 36 5 reviewThe story behind the comic book The Thirty Six is based on the Kabbalistic belief that there are 36 people in the world upon whom it is saved by their simple existence. As the book states, “In times of need, these people emerge from anonymity to save us.”


Fair warning, comic book sniffers, the latest issue of The Thirty Six will leave you with a serious addiction and no idea where you'll find your next fix - and this is a good thing! To say that Kristopher White ends this chapter of his epic story with a bang is a massive understatement. It's issues like this one that make you say, "...there should be a movie."

Person of InterestOn Tuesday, the Paley Center for Media honored a breakout CBS show from this past television season, Person of Interest.  The show came out of the gate as one of the highest rated pilots of the season by critics and one of the highest testing pilots for CBS in the last fifteen years.  Person of Interest quickly received a full first season pickup order of twenty-two episodes, and then received a Season 2 pickup order in March of this year.  It's a show that the network has confidence in, and the fans have spoken by awarding it the People's Choice Award for Favorite New TV Drama in January.  With a strong cast and crew behind the show and names like J.J. Abrams, Jonathan Nolan, Jim Caveziel, and Michael Emerson leading the way, Person of Interest stands to become a legacy show for CBS.

 

Wish You Were HereIndie studio Entertainment One (eOne) picked up Sundance World Dramatic Competition film Wish You Were Here for a probable theatrical release of Fall 2012.


The Australian film follows four friends as they let loose on a vacation in Southeast Asia. Breathtaking sequences shot by cinematographer Jules O’Loughlin and edited by Jason Ballantine expose the culture, the marketplaces, the raves, and the high-octane happiness that the tourists indulge in. The tragedy and mystery of this dramatic thriller is that by the end of the trip, only three of the four friends return home.

Nightcrawler MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 


The last time I checked, Nightcrawler bit the teleportation dust in Uncanny X-Men, so imagine my delight when I found him alive and well in Uncanny X-Force. I don't know why or when he came back, as I am merely a visitor to the X-Verse these days and not a resident, but who am I to look a gift elf in the pie hole?
